Our notes on cocktails this Friday.
From Gastronomista, an Avua Cachaca Pam Am cocktail:
I was recently introduced to Avuá Cachaça, a relatively new cachaça on the market. After a boozy night out on the town touring some of New York City’s best bars, including Sasha Petrosky’s famed Milk & Honey, I’m convinced that this is a bottle I want to keep in my library of libations.
Please place your seats and trays in their upright and locked position.
Indeed, on YouTube, “Come Fly With Me” by Frank Sinatra.
From Saveur, for those who like it dark and early in the day, here’s The Brew: Founder’s Kentucky Breakfast Stout:
One of the biggest deals for craft beer enthusiasts is the annual spring release of Founders Brewing Company’s “highly acclaimed” KBS, or Kentucky Breakfast Stout. The outrageous 11.2% bourbon barrel-aged beer attracts fans from all over the country to Founders’ home base of Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they line up for hours on end for short pours of the inky, robust brew. The beer’s release has become so popular that Founders issues tickets for the event, and this year, rather than pour it just at the brewery’s taproom, they decided to celebrate with a week-long party throughout greater Grand Rapids.
From the New York Times, we have Cocktail Science, Simplified. Booze with cookies, though, is not to my taste.
